À propos

The Runge Mortuary and Crematory, a funeral home in Davenport, Iowa, specializes in helping you create a personalized memorial tribute to be treasured by all who attend.

Funerals that celebrate life

Whether you choose a contemporary celebration of life, a traditional religious ceremony or a funeral with military honors for a veteran, The Runge Mortuary and Crematory's licensed funeral directors excel in taking care of the details, so you can spend more time with those who matter most. 

Tell us an inspiring tale from your loved one's life, and we will help you create a memorial to match. Host a one-night-only exhibition of an avid photographer’s best work in our spacious reception area, which adapts to meet the size and style of your guest list. Welcome guests to a dinner in honor of the town’s most beloved hostess, complete with her own recipes prepared and served by a professional catering team. Our interfaith chapel holds 100 people, and we can arrange everything from themed decor to music that evokes just the right mood. 

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements. Our on-site crematory means your loved one never leaves our care.

History

Henry Runge founded  The Runge Mortuary and Crematory in 1895 at a location on 3rd Street. The funeral home was moved down the street in 1902, where it stayed until it was relocated to our red brick Colonial-style building on East Kimberly Road in 1969.

Henry’s son, Martin, took over operations after Henry’s passing in 1916. Martin’s 3 sons (Albert F., Henry C. and William M.) eventually joined in as well. Henry Sr.’s son, Peter Runge, joined in 1972, and his grandson, Henry C. Runge III, joined in 1991, becoming the 5th generation devoted to caring for the needs of the Quad Cities community over the last 122 years.

Cutting-edge funeral services

We had the first licensed funeral director (Henry Runge, 1895), and the funeral home continues a tradition of cutting-edge service to our community. In 1902, we built the town’s 1st dedicated mortuary building. We began to operate Davenport’s 1st motorized hearse in 1914, which was christened during the funeral of Louise Runge. We opened a formal chapel in 1919, air conditioned it in 1926 and provided off-street parking by 1935. We established the Quad Cities first on-site crematory in 1984. Today, as personalized memorial services and contemporary celebrations of life grow in popularity, we bring custom-tailored tributes to the Quad Cities. 

Upholding tradition

Today, The Runge Mortuary and Crematory is a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest group of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America. It is our honor to serve our neighbors with well over a century of experience.

"Could not hear music we requested and streamed service mic was too far from speakers to be clearly heard by on-line listeners and camera too far away. But overall, excellent!"
